Up Up and Away

Meets All Airline & TSA Requirements

Sleepypod Air’s unique design allows it to contract in size to fit in the space below most airline seats during the restricted times of takeoff and landing.

Once the plane is in the air, the Sleepypod Air can be expanded to allow a pet the largest possible space below an airline seat.

Plenty of Legroom!

“Your feline will be the envy of all the other furry frequent fliers when he kicks back in this airline-approved pet carrier at 10,000 feet. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of legroom!”

“I get many compliments from people who want to know what kind of a carrier it is. And if you do use it for flying, you no longer have to worry about a carrier that isn’t going to fit under your seat.(Sleepypod Air)”, Animal Radio
“The Sleepypod Air is unique in that it conforms to the size of the aircraft you are on. It also serves as a “car seat,” and a crate, perfect for hotel rooms and home.
Our dog loved it immediately. She was happy to go inside and make herself comfortable, knowing right away it was for her and getting very excited about it. ”
Green Walla, EcoMamas Guide
“Then, after you board, it expands a few inches but fits under a chair. It also has a slot for slipping through a rolling luggage handle, so the bag can rest on top, and has seatbelt clips for placing it in car seats.”, Gizmodo
